And by golly them wallops really hurt, hingey. I don't think my fish will ever recover. The bible didn't explain gravity, either. Sure glad our ancestors didn't float off into space. . .
The bible wasn't written as a scientific treatise. It was written so the least sophisticated of us would understand why we have war and crime and sickness and death, things difficult for many smart folks to understand. He left development of technology to the application of human ingenuity.
That's why we can build those fantastic computers but can't cure mental illness.
